Upon retirement in 2004, they moved to Minnesota where they built their retirement home on the shores of Cass Lake. She enjoyed living on the lake and spending time with family, especially her granddaughter. She also enjoyed traveling with friends, going south to Alabama in the winter, sitting by campfires, fishing at “the point”, and hanging out with friends. Jann was also an avid Green Bay Packers fan.
